IED - Impossibly Easy Datastore

IED utilizes Google App Engine's datastore in order to provide a persistent warehouse for arbitrary JSON objects that are made easily accessible from client-side javascript code via JSON-P.


Storing data Example:{"foo":"bar","baz":9}&callback=func Response: func('agNpZWRyDQsSB2NvbnRhY3QYAQw'); (item key is unique to this object)

Retrieve by item key Example: Response: func({"foo":"bar","baz":9});

Retrieve all items by storeKey

Pass an empty object.{}&callback=callbackFunc Example:{}&callback=func Response: func([{"foo":"bar","baz":9},{"foo":"bar2","baz":10}]);

Retrieve specific items by query and storeKey

Pass an object that to match against. Example{"foo":"bar2"}&callback=func Response: func([{"foo":"bar2","baz":10}]);

  1. Anyone can access this datastore. That means that anyone can read the objects you've created as long as they know your object's name.

  4. Querying for a set of objects will only work on that object's 1st level parameters. That means that if you have an object named "contact" you can search based on but NOT
  5. The amount of data is limited by how long the URL can be. This varies by browser.

So what?
